Hello, so ive been playing for awhile and some friends of mine just started up. We were having a discussion about backdooring and how some people do it and others dont.

my stance was always its frowned upon. however it is not stated anywhere that you cannot do it. so what do you guys think? is it an unspoken rule or is it do whatever it takes to win.

a blue post would be awesome!

but what do you guys think?

back dooring cool or uncool?

There is nothing wrong with back dooring. I just hate it when people do that to our team. =/

I don't think it matters if you're getting back doored you're fighting 5v4 you should win and be able to take out atleast 2 turrets, I mean with 4 of the other teams guys down you should be able to get an inhib down.(maybe 2 depending on how long the game has gone)

Of course if your 5 people can't kill 4 people and get killed in the process I mean really /surrender

Imo, backdooring is extremely effective in Lol because you don't have TPs. Yes you have blue pill but it's long and is easily interupted.
You'd have to chose teleport as a spell and its timer is still quite long.

I don't have an opinion on it as I like it when my team does it and pissed if the other does.

Edit: about the above post you're not necessarly pushing when it's done to you and 4 people with a tower can stale another team, especially if they have good tanks/heal.

First define backdooring, a lot or people have different definitions of it.

Backdooring:
(a) Destroying a tower without minions and the enemies aren't near their base
(b) Destroying a tower without minions and the enemies are near their base
(c) Destroying a tower with minions and the enemies aren't near their base
(d) Destroying a tower with minions and the enemies are near their base
(e) variation of one of the following

or you could play TF who has a 1 second gate, with a cooldown (with cooldown reduction) that's about a minute long
allowing you to both backdoor and stop backdooring

or grab fortify to prevent it while blue pilling

So you'd restrict yourself to one hero against backdooring?
Fortify is a good idea to have in general but as soon as you see someone coming after fortify or not you can just blue pill and get a 5v4 fight or just know that now the spell is on cd (if it wasn't before).

Backdooring is hitting an inhibitor or nexus with it's turrets down while the team attempts to push. I believe it is perfectly legit, if they have lost that many turrets then this is another weakness they must cope with.

Don't make up artificial rules to play by. Play to win.

Backdooring is when you attack a turret or nexus or inhibitor, whatever.
without creeps. That's not to say you need to wait for creeps.

if they have creeps farther down the lane. it's backdooring.

And it should be frowned upon.
for sure.
